About the National Board of Review:

The National Board of Review of Motion Pictures was founded in 1909 in New York City, 14 years after the birth of cinema, to protest New York City Mayor George B. McClellan Jr.’s revocation of moving-picture exhibition licenses on Christmas Eve 1908.  To determine the NBR’s annual awards, ballots are sent in by over 100 members – select knowledgeable film enthusiasts, academics, and filmmakers in the New York metropolitan area – and subsequently tabulated by a certified public accountancy firm in order to decide the winners. In addition, the awards jury helps to determine the special achievement awards presented at the annual gala in January.
